Topic learning at Coleridge opens a door to the world.

Topic learning at Coleridge opens a door to the world.

We use a creative, collaborative and cross-curricular approach to topic learning. Each year, children actively participate in a number of history and geography related topics which excite and inspire them to develop their knowledge and understanding.

In history, children are motivated to learn about the past and how it relates to us today. Children discover about Britain’s history and also that of the wider world. Our approach challenges children to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement.

Geography based topics also stimulate children’s curiosity about the world. Our curriculum equips children with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and both natural and human environments. As children progress, their growing knowledge about the world helps them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes.
